      Of course someone else might get the idea that you approve of the "silencing" because it so happened to target people whose contributions you disliked and declare "off topic". What you may feel off-topic need not be to anyone.

    That's really insulting that you would accuse mods of playing favorites and punishing people whose opinions they disagree with.

    It is even more so insulting to think that I am a mod or someone who has had any authority over...well, anyone.

I did not say the mods were playing favourites, but I did find myself disagreeing with some of their decisions at the time. I observed that you approve of their decisions at the time, but that did not lead me to the nonsensical conclusion that you were a mod or anything, I just noticed that we reacted to their policies in a different way.

It isn't that I approve of their actions or not. I just don't see them making moderating decisions based on people criticizing a story and think the claims to such are bull, because I've criticized stories and never felt anything less than welcome to do so. It also seems even more of a dubious claim considering at least two of the mods are not fans of OMD, and at least one of them only buys Spidey comics second hand now at cons rather than directly from comic stores.

Also, because, you know...the massive amount of criticism on the stories during OMD and BND. So to claim people were silenced (I know you didn't use those words) when there's hundreds of posts suggesting otherwise is really, really odd.
